Toronto Skyline
(2008) I love Toronto! Toronto is the cultural, entertainment and financial capital of Canada. The city is home to more than 2.7 million people and the capital city of the Province of Ontario. There is much to do and see in downtown Toronto, most within walking distance or a short ride on the easy-to-use subway, streetcar or taxi. Underground Toronto (PATH) is an underground shopping complex with a maze of 16 miles of hallways with 1,200 shops and businesses. Above ground, find striking architecture, clean streets. Broadway shows and beautiful views. To help plan your trip, go to the Toronto Tourism website.
The Royal Ontario Museum, commonly known as the ROM, is a major museum for world culture and natural history in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The ROM is the fifth largest museum in North America, containing more than six million items and over 40 galleries. It is also the largest museum in Canada. The centrepiece is the recently-opened (June 2007) addition called the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, which was controversial with public opinion divided about the merits of its striking angular design.

The Sharp Centre for Design is propped up on 100-ft stilts at the Ontario College of Art and Design.

The Royal Bank Plaza has 14,000 mirrored windows insulated with 24-karat gold.

For many years, the CN Tower was the world's largest free-standing structure. Enjoy views from the Sky Pod (147th floor) or reserve a table for casual cuisine at Horizons revolving restaurant.


Hockey Hall of Fame
My favorite building in downtown Toronto is the Old City Hall, built in 1899. It is now a courthouse. The new "modern" city hall is next door.

Enjoy the views from a harbor cruise.
